Yummy Yummy Yummy… Peanut Butter in my Tummy. Hehehe… 😛
We all love peanut butter and peanut. It’s not just yummy but very nutritious. Peanuts are not nuts at all, but legumes, means source of protein. Peanut butter is rich in vitamin B12 which is great for promoting healthy skin. It also contains riboflavin, Calcium, zinc and magnesium etc. It is a source of protein which is great for your body, skin and hair.
Also it’s anti-oxidant, and contains Vitamin e which helps in maintaining the skin and also helps in regenerating the skin cells. In short, peanut butter is good for your body as well your skin and hair. In fact, if you have dry skin you can apply peanut butter directly on your skin as a face mask for a smooth, hydrated skin. Since peanut butter contains protein so it’s great for your skin rejuvenation. So, now include peanut butter in your diet as well keep it in your purse.
So today I thought to make a wonderful DIY lip balm made from peanut butter and chocolate means yummy, yummy, yummy and soft lips.
P.S. If you are allergic to peanut replace it with almond butter or coco butter.
Happy New Year to Everyone. New Year means fresh start, self motivation, happiness and prosperity everywhere and also more beauty tips for face. Last year I wrote a poem on New Year. Poem name is Rebirth and it’s like this –
“How to begin…
When the clock strikes at 12
And the world celebrated yet another year.
I was alone at my place,
Thinking, how to begin.
Then I decided to start again,
And break all the chains.
I am fed up of crying and trying,
I know I can’t go back in time and change it.
I look for a new beginning and a fresh start,
Something to replace this hole in my heart.
A new beginning which is so real.
A new beginning which is all around.
A new beginning which last in my life.
Here I am not talking about love.
Here I am not talking about the pain.
Love that has no false hoods or lies.
Both of us have been through pain and suffering.
Both of us are done with each other.
Here, all I can say, a new beginning I have begun.
A new road I have taken off.
A new life I have started up.
A path to success or faith you can say.
A path to prosperity and gentility.
A time to start a new,
Like a fresh morning dew.
Leave the storms behind,
And look for rainbow delight.
The years will never take away,
Our chance to start a new.
It’s only the beginning now,
So dreams can still come true.
Nevertheless, the post is not about poem but wonderful DIY beauty products which will help you to get rid of pimple marks. It’s called turmeric face pack. We all know the benefits of turmeric. It’s antiseptic in nature, anti-inflammatory properties, anti-aging properties etc. It is a wonder spice which has been used in India from the ancient times. We all know “haldi ubtan” is applied to Indian brides and grooms for that instant glow and for excellent exfoliation.
Turmeric is beneficial for wrinkles, acnes, stretch marks, burns, pigmentation, tanning, oily skin, skin diseases and many more. When taken as food, turmeric nourishes your skin and gives it a natural glow.
Here, I am using a whole turmeric root for this face pack. Turmeric is applied in many ways. The famous turmeric face pack is with gram flour mixed in milk/yogurt. However, gram flour is not suited for all skin-type. And I am one of them; because of gram-flour I always get breakouts (my skin is that sensitive). Therefore, I made this wonderful DIY beauty product which is suited for all skin type and its super easy to make.
